The inside story
From the hunting grounds of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II to the lavish summer residence of the Habsburg, the Schönbrunn Palace has a rich history that spans well over 300 years. Now a celebrated symbol of Vienna and the city’s top attraction, since 1996 this sumptuous Baroque palace has been listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site.
Of the 1441 rooms, 40 are currently open to the public and run the gamut from ornate salons to Rococo staterooms and the residential suites of Emperor Franz Joseph and wife Empress Elizabeth (aka Sisi). Admire the extravagant interiors that have changed little since the reign of Empress Maria Theresa and don’t miss historic rooms such as the Hall of Mirrors, where six-year-old Mozart performed for said empress in 1762.
